David Hockney is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century and an important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960’s.
This nationally touring exhibition highlighted his talents as one of the greatest printmakers of our time and was a thrilling insight into the mind of an iconic artist who at the age of 81 is still searching for new ways of seeing.
This was the first major exhibition of work by David Hockney at Hazelhurst and was drawn from the National Gallery of Australia’s extensive collection, presenting over 80 works from 1961 to the present day including prints developed using lithography and etching, photocopiers and fax machines, and more recently, iPhones and iPads.
A truly international artist who moved to Los Angeles In 1964 and during his lifetime exhibited widely in the USA, UK and Europe, David Hockney has always demonstrated a profound visual curiosity and desire to surprise, shock and entertain.
“I love new mediums. I think mediums can turn you on, they can excite you; they always let you do something in a different way” - David Hockney
